Investigations of Public Areas
We have not done many recent investigations of public places. Recently we have concentrated more on private locations, which we do not publish. Many of these investigations were performed under the name Pitch Paranormal.
Chambersburg Masonic Temple
This was a very interesting location. The history of the building goes back to 1823. It was one of very few buildings to survive the burning of Chambersburg. In spite of the history we found few signs and no proof of paranormal activity.
Weistling Hall Penn State Mont Alto
Weistling Hall has a history of paranormal reports going back over 100 years. Its was first built in the early 1800's. Investigators present were Josh, Kevin, Mike, Tracy, Carl, Wendy, and Chrissy. Our night started a little unpleasantly with a sewage leak in the basement we discovered. It soon got very interesting, once we entered the attic, Kevin was touched on the leg on the front steps. Josh was called over and he was touched on the shoulder. This was followed by a third touch on request. Luckily a voice recorder was rolling at the time and several EVPs were caught at the time. They were both male and female voices. Mike also had some luck with his flashlight turning off on request.
Gettysburg Battlefield & old cemetery
This was a spur of the moment investigation. The plan was to go to McPherson's woods in Gettysburg. It was just Josh and Kevin on this one. We started out at McPherson's woods in the "first day" area of the battlefield. It went well with shadowy movements, a few strange pics, and a long EVP. Next we went to Culp's Hill. Our very first attempt at a pic had ribbon shaped lights and orbs which were observed with the naked eye in the flash. We then drove by Sach's Bridge, noticing about 10- 15 cars there, we moved on. We decided to check out an old cemetary in area where strange sick feelings were noticed during a geocaching trip last summer. We noticed some strange feelings, and picked up a few EVPs. This cemetary seems to have some "not so nice" energies.
This was an investigation into strange noises and shadow sightings at a local club. Josh, Kevin, and Mike were the investigators present. We got a late start on this one due to the business staying open late. The majority of the reports were from the kitchen area. This posed a problem due to the noise of the different appliances. In spite of all this we did find some evidence.
Old Franklin County Jail
The Old Franklin County Jail was In operation from about 1818- 1970s. It is a wonderful old building with 2 sections. The front part is the older original area. The rear cell blocks were built in the 1880's. During our investigation we found that most, if not all, of the activity was confined to the older area. Specifically one cell in the dungeon, the old medical treatment room (which is set up as an old apothecary now), and the attic. There were several evps caught, some of which are in response to questions. We would love to return with a more targeted investigation.
Troy Hill Cemetery
This is an ongoing investigation, which we have pretty much unlimited access to. It started as our training ground and surprisingly it turned out to have some pretty intense activity. The lady who had lived in the house, had some mental problems and was not well liked in the neighborhood. She had an extreme hoarding problem and owned a large number of cats. When she died it took a long time until she was found. The house was in such bad shape, the current owner has had to "gut" the house and start from scratch. We had no prior reports of paranormal activity, but knowing the full story of the house, thought it would be a great candidate for a haunting.
We keep all these private.
